have kids the same age, 30, 40 minutes away from newtown in elementary school in a town very similar. this hit very close to home for us and for a lot of people. >> you know, based on that point, if it can happen in newtown and it can happen anywhere, in a small rural community and haggerstown, maryland, an idyllic community, town of 30,000, just likes newtown, and people are mourning and weeping as they mourn for the teachers at sanry hook elementary school. >> just when you think you can be composed and keep it together and maybe the tears will have stopped, they put out the names and ages of the victims and even not knowing them, but just to read through their names and their ages is just wretching. we will show you some of their names now, the victims, there were 12. we'll show them later to you, basically 20 children and younger than we thought, remember that president obama and his first report that they were between five and ten years old. they were really just six and seven years old, all of them and it's also to know, we didn't know at the time, what close range they were ki

the presidency to george w. bush. it has been a week since the school shootings in connecticut, and in newtown, they marked that moment today. (bells ringing) church bells rang 26 times for the 20 first graders and six adults killed at sandy hook elementary school. the gunman's mother was also killed. the scene was repeated all across the country-- including at the white house. the national rifle association broke its silence today following the newtown tragedy. the executive vice president of the n.r.a., wayne laperriere, said that schools would be safer if they were protected with guns. here's chip reid. >> reporter: wayne laperriere gave no ground to gun control advocates who want to ban assault weapons and magazines that hold more than ten rounds. instead, he shifted the focus to the n.r.a.'s plan for securing the nation's schools. >> the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. what if when adam lanza started shooting his way into sandy hook elementary school last friday he'd been confronted by qualified armed security? i call on congress today to act immediate
. >> turning now to the tragedy in newtown as more victims are being laid to rest today, plans are already being drawn up for the next congress to ban assault weapons. joining us now is democratic congressman of kentucky who announced this week, he will co-sponsor such legislation. representative, thank you for being with us and you said this week, you are willing to lose your seat over your position on gun control. what was your response on to the nra news conference that we saw just yesterday? >> well, richard, i thought it was stunningly insense i hativet is how i felt. the idea that the only approach to gun violence is gun fights is just not the way this country should, i think see itself. i know most americans don't see the wild, wild with west returning to the united states. but that is what they suggested. and the idea that they were making meaningful -- meaningful contributions, the only meaningful contribution i saw was to the gun manufacturers by way of free advertising. you know, they do what they have been doing a long time. that is come up with every excuse, except looking at
of teachers? if you have a madman like you had in connecticut, and we went to newtown, we went and rallied right outside of newtown at churches there. when you have a mad man comes in and he feels the teacher is armed, they become the first target. you're dealing with people with automatic and semiautomatic weapons. a teacher will not be able to stop that with a regular gun or even an automatic gun. again, who will mandate that for all schools? who will pay for that? it is not the solution. the solution is the way you stop a bad guy with a gun is take the gun, not try to have a good guy with a gun. you take the gun. then he's just a bad guy and we can deal with him being bad differently than we deal with a bad guy with a gun with 100 rounds of ammunition. >> sir, great to see you. >> thank you. >> as always, you can watch the reverend weeknights 6:00 p.m. eastern on msnbc. later in the show action i'll have a chance to speak with the mayor of marlboro, new jersey about that city's plan to have armed guards in all of its schools come january. >>> meanwhile, we switch gears to talk about the
for action after the horrific massacre in newtown, connecticut. the president took a number of questions. many of them on another major issue facing washington. negotiations on the fiscal cliff. with house speaker john boehner holding his own 52nd presser on that today. and we'll have more on that throughout the hour. but first in the renewed debate on gun control. the president today named vice president joe biden to lead an inter-agency task force to develop a policy response to the tragedy at sandy hook saying he cannot do it alone. >> ultimately if this effort is to succeed, it's going to require the help of the american people. it's going to require all of you. mothers and fathers, daughters and sons, pastors, law enforcement, mental health professionals, and yes gun owners standing up and saying enough on behalf of our kids. >> the president reiterated that he'll use whatever powers his office holds to prevent another tragedy like newtown. and his choice of vice president biden signals a robust effort to confront america's foremost gun lobbyists. >> the nra is an organization that
after newtown, lapierre called for armed police in every school and a national mental health registry. that's right. register people who have mental health problems but no registry for gun buyers and owners. let's bring in mike who is in washington. >> reporter: the feeling is the nra may have helped its cause and the nra may have helped its fundraising cause. nra may have fired up its base. but the nra did nothing to help its cause here on capitol hill. quite the opposite. what we've heard from lawmakers today in the wake of that wasn't even a press conference he didn't take questions. in the wake of that statement that wayne lapierre made was that the impetus now -- they almost have fresh momentum. we heard diane feinstein one of the principal authors of gun legislation that has new life now. she says it doesn't matter how long it takes it may take a year, two years, three years, the conventional wisdom is after the horror from newtown dies down somewhat, after the outrage and anger has subside, congress doesn't get down to case until february after the inauguration, after the state

as we watch these children be laid to rest in newtown, all of these things bring home the realities of life and compromise and what needs to be done not only with gun control, but as the president said, the immediate issue of this fiscal cliff. why put the american people through this kind of stress. i want to play what bernie sanders said about the compromise on social security. not everyone will be happy with a deal if it is reached on both sides. >> just a few minutes ago i had a press conference with all the organizations. they are clear and they said you know what, we sacrificed enough. we lost our eyes and limbs. do not balance the budget on the backs of disabled vets and senior organizations and the american people are saying let's do deficit reduction in a way that is fair. >> so that would mean getting to the table, working out something that is fair, that is also consistent with what the american people have said through the election that they would like to see. >> you can see that the president's most recent offer to the republicans will be a tough sell. it is a balanced

to what we saw in newtown. >> you know, i don't think he has a choice with 80 million american moms coming at him. we have done nothing before and hasn't worked. i think the nra and frankly many congressmen laid out what they see for us in the country where the bad and good guys are armed and duke it out over our kids' heads. we won't allow that to happen. we won't rest until we see that change. >> shannon watts, nice to see you. thank you. >> thank you. >>> are retail sales diving off the fiscal cliff? we'll talk about how the tax cut debate is impacting the recent christmas shopping economy. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico adverts. so we're taking you behind the scenes. this coffee cup, for example, is computer animated. it's not real. geico's customer satisfaction is quite real though. this computer-animated coffee tastes dreadful. geico. 15 minutes could save you 15 % or more on car insurance. someone get me a latte will ya, please? when you lost the thing you can't believe you lost.. when what you just bought, just broke. or when you have a litt
and there was a preventible incident lie newtown, we would regret having done nothing. i appropriate having the principal or someone designated, just one person per school get intensive training, trained not only in marksmanship, but in judgment, determine how to -- >> is this like the air marshal program, where air marshals are now on the country's planes, we don't know on the flight who that air marshal would be, so obviously with the training you're saying, elect one person in the school that maybe no one will know, is that selected person? >> exactly. in fact, it's really analogous to the pilots really being able to have guns, but they decided it was a good idea, and i think it would help lessen the danger of another newtown without creating more problems than it solves, which i'm afraid would happen if we allowed all teachers to bring guns to school. >> david, i know you help train those teachers. yesterday i had an opportunity to have someone on the show that's looking into this. i want to play what they said. >> we had about 200 teachers, and it was broken into two farther, the first part was abou

tragedy at newtown, connecticut and the picture, the first grade picture has been released and just drives home the incredible loss and tragedy. this was one classroom and now the name, vicky soto's class, the 27-year-old teacher who had the zest for life who was killed. and many cite her as a hero and half of the class was saved and the story goes, we don't know, this is reported by six and seven year olds and the story was vague, she apparently hid them all in a closet and when she was killed, when she confronted the gunman and told them that she had sent them to the auditorium, she was killed and when some of the kids heard the gunshots, they ran out and they were killed. >> clayton: and olivia engel, apparently this photo was released by olivia's mother and appeared in the new york post this morning and as we continue to talk about what unfolded that day and of course, you look at the horrible images and many people were reminded what happened and unfolded in columbine, of course. then on friday, this was exacerbated this discussion about gun control and whether or not there should be

there is a way to argue the issue on the merits. the anti-gun nuts are only using newtown as an opportunity to advance their agenda. i don't think it is as real good idea for our side meaning the prosecond amendment side to go crawling around in the gutter with those guys and do the same thing. i think it is a very bad business. >> argue the point on the merits. don't get into the game of publishing names. >> that's right. >> laura: well, you're nice. let's go to mr. walters here. what is the deal here? is there anything wrong with doing that that? i mean look privacy is privacy and public figures we want privacy but in the end if someone wants to find out where you live they can find out where you live but the gun issue is different because that is not readily available. you to hunt around and get a foia request of some sort to the state and find out where the guns are. the newspaper editors are not happy here. >> there is two aspects to the debate. one s reall s legally was it lt do this were any laws broken. the first amendment would protect the right to publish the names on both sides.

fundamentally changed since newtown? and what we saw last night from house republicans is yet another symptom of the real problem for the gop. they don't believe in compromise. and they've lurched too far to the right. we begin with where things stand on the fiscal cliff, msnbc political analyst and msnbc contributor jared bernstein. jentle men, president obama tonight said he had spoken with speaker boehner in addition to senate majority leader harry reed. >> i just spoke to speaker boehner and i also met with senator reed. in the next few days, i've asked leaders of congress to work towards a package that prevents a tax hike on middle class americans, protects unemployment insurance for two million americans and lays the groundwork for further work on both growth and deficit reduction. >> jared, is this actually a setback for the president in so far as the embarrassed speaker with someone at least with whom he was dealing? and now, the president really doesn't have a negotiation partner? >> i do think it's a setback from the nation because the president and speaker boehner were actually mov
on the iraq war. congress should bring the victims of newtown up to capitol hill who would be willing to call for serious changes in gun policy. i think shows like this show have to focus on the fact we have a new toub that occurs in this country every single day. 30 americans on average are killed every day from handgun violence. i think we need massive protests against irresponsible retailers like walmart who sell assault weapons and make them available to anyone -- pretty much anybody that asks. the question is not whether or not we'll have change. the question is whether or not progressives, independents and fair-minded republicans will form a national based movement that will really expose the need for this. one place we might start is asking congress if they believe in the self-defense argue am, why don't they allow guns in congress? >> the thing is polls are mixed on gun control. a majority favors stronger gun control, but a majority also says we shouldn't ban assault weapons. so how does the president frame his case to voters so they support him? >> i think, first, he's got to do like
the tragedies like sandy hook. will he forego his >> sean: in the wake of the newtown shooting, hollywood's biggest stars are bidding that the film industry does, in fact, bear some responsibility for tragedies like this one. this weekend left wing actor jamie foxx said, quote, we cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn't have a sort of influence, it does. now, that's ironic. in fact, you know, what mr. foxx had said, he said this while promoting a brand new movie, jango unchained. does he mean it, and if so, will he say no thanks to the paycheck. here with reaction, tamara and nicole. >> they fly in private jets and complain about suvs and greenhouse gases. they have armed guards, but then complain about people who arm themselves. >> it's the same thing that michael moore did when he came out and he had a film on down with capitalism but yet profited off it. it's the same thing. >> it's not the same thing. he's basically saying that hollywood does have an influence in our culture. for example, jaws. it came out a hundred years ago when i was a lit
that commercial. >> greg: i bet. >> andrea: this is a cool story. the police officers in newtown, connecticut, have been working hard. police officers from neighboring towns decided to come in yesterday and give those guys and gals the day off. so alternative police officers came in. they worked for them. the police officers that have had a horrific last couple of weeks to have the nice memories with the families. >> kimberly: a good story. >> andrea: police force is really support each other. >> kimberly: unique idea. what can i do to help? good practical way. they have been working around the clock and they can be with their families. awesome. >> greg: oh, me. banned phrase. resolutions. nobody actually does resolutions. but you think everybody does resolutions because when turn on tv or open a newspaper or read a magazine, somebody is doing a story on resolutions. if there were no reporters asking do you have resolutions there would be nobody talking about resolutions. next time a reporter says what is a resolution, keep kicking reporters in the knees. then start kicking them. >> kimberly:
rocketed upward in the wake of newtown, tennessee said gun purchases are an all time high and wal-mart sold out of sem automatics in five states. a leading bullet manufacturer said they sold three in three days and that benefits the nra because in many stores, they get $1 from the sale of every gun and every package of ammunition. a counter weight to the nra, there is a lot of money in gun rights legislation and working that side of the aisle. no money to be made in gun control. we have the total fight. >> you are right. what can we do about that? you lay out why it's a really uphill battle. maybe it is that citizens united will create the ability for billionaires and high network people or membership groups that top the fight for common sense measures to pour the kind of money into the political process to make a difference. if there is a way to combine the fiscal cliff and a way to arm those who will be full verable to losing the payroll tax in 30 days and have their gun bought back. wey category combine every possible proposal in one. ask that is an incredible idea. i am here in washingt
in newtown last week. and president obama pledged to push through new guns without dlai. but where are holder and the obama administration when it comes to the guns that fell into the hands of mexican drug cartels. a fast & furious firearm has been tie to the death of mexican beauty queen, maria susana gomez homas killed in late november. same state department of justice that allowed hundreds of weapons to fall in the hands of kidnappers and drug dealers and criminals and are now going to consider taking away guns from law-abiding citizens. if that's not pure hypocrisy, i don't know what is. so we gave our government the obama administration gave guns to kidnappers, criminals, drug cartels, murderers -- these weapons show up killing border agents, but no they are going to lecture america on gun control. i got this straight? >> yeah. i think that's the honest national conservation on guns and gun violence that we need to have. it has to be thorough and complete t. does have to incorporate some honest criticism of this administration's own culpability in bloodshed. you are talking about at leas
is not where they would like it to be. >> kelly: the pain unbearable in newtown, as the final three are laid to rest today. emilie parker, josephine gay and ana marquez-green. and three of the victims last last friday. >> jamie: and adam lanza, more details on his personality a week after his inexplicable rampage. lanza described as the awkward peculiar kid would wear the same clothes to school day in and day out and rarely speak to classmates and spend hours in the basement of his home where his mother was reportedly storing her collection of firearms. >> kelly: jamie, it was the same weapons that he used to go on the murderous rampage taking 26 lives at a nearby elementary school before eventually turning the guns on himself. exactly one week after that shooting, the nation's top gun lobby group is breaking its silence, commenting on the growing calls for increased gun control and sparking a heated debate over what they see as a fundamental right. >> but since when did the gun automatically become a bad word? a gun in the hands of a secret service agent protecting our president isn't a bad
of other folks in the area who have guns. in fact they said this: the massacre in newtown remains top of mind for many of our readers, we have obtained the names and addresses legally. now they've done it again. >> juliet: they're doing the same thing for putnam county, a nearby county. remember the blogger, chris fountain, who published the addresses, i believe, it was of these people. >> clayton: of the newspaper people. >> juliet: yes, who published the addresses and names of the people who had permits. here is what he says, the journal writers should have their info published. in the aftermath of newtown it was obviously one tragedy, but somehow they were conflating legal gun owners with a devil up in newtown and putting the two together and i was offended by that and how they would like it if their addresses were published. so-- >> he was justifying. we had a gun trainer from put numb county. he hadn't his information published and he knew it was coming and going to end up happening. he said this is ridiculous. both sides are ridiculous here, the blogger shouldn't have been publi
a little bit about newtown as a water shed moment. it may be that that press conference will be a watershed moment for the white house as well. what we saw on the national desk was a tremendous outpouring of kind of surprise, even rage at that -- in the nation from people who feel the fierce urgency of right now. not of january. i think there's going to be a tremendous amount of pressure on the white house from the states and from constituents within the states and constituent groups within the states to push on gun control reform right away. >> meagan, i want to ask you. there's the public outcry -- things are falling off of my body. that's for the blooper reel next year. there is the question about the fierce urgency of now, the tragedy being immediately in our wake. there's also the long-term prescription for the republican party, which we're talking about a lot, but on gun control there is a sense that there are moderate republicans who would not be opposed to some kind of reform, and we're beginning to hear representative jean green from texas and the washington post saying i worry the
after 24 hours. >> but also as we're getting further and further away from the newtown tragedy, i hope people don't lose their sense of what it means to that community and what the impact has been on that community. we're going to have these sausage making conversations about common sense gun safety versus gun control versus the nra. i hope we keep the national tragedies in mind as we have those conversations so we can have the kind of compassion that helps us to understand, wait a second, asking for background chekts to purchase firearms across the board, internet, gun shows, is not asking too much. asking we put a robust ban on assault weapons to me that's not asking too much. we honor the second amendment. we know people have the right to bear arms. >> chief, you know this better than anyone, the unfortunate reality is i think between now and the time that whenever legislation is taken up, there, unfortunately, will be more gun violence and there will be more instances to remind us of the acute need for some of these things we're talking about. when you talk with officers who are wa
. >> so he wears this ammunition belt a few short days after what happened at newtown elementary school and i mean, the thought process that must go through your head and go on campus and not alert security about it, but wearing a full ammunition belt, his mom shall it was for fun, they were fake, it wasn't for real. >> dave: ha, ha, real funny. >> clayton: how does anyone know that. >> juliet: the friends say the belt is a fashion statement. he constantly wears it, it's a punk thing. >> dave: that's cool. >> juliet: a stylish thing. and we had a counselor on and a psychotherapist. >> you could get away with that 20, 30 years ago, but particularly the sensitive nation of everything going on in our nation after the connecticut shooting three days after that, you've got to have a better common sense, a belt bullets, no justification, i look at this as a parental thing. as a society we've somehow kept 18 to 24-year-old men and women, like a perennial type warp of adolescence and time for us as parents to start holding our kids accountable at a young age into adolescence and young adult hoo
